our -- >> what are we going to do about it? >> poor alec. he's always getting in trouble like this. but i guess he went after -- he says he didn't throw any punches. but it looks like -- >> these days you're on camera -- >> i don't know. i tell you what i do with the paparazzis. i consider them friends. you want to take a picture, i'll pose for the picture. you know, they meet you when you land in l.a. they were there. and get along. and then let them go and they let me go. so i don't know why he doesn't do that. >> you know, we both know alec privately. and he's a delightful guy. he's funny. he's so much fun. he's interesting. and then these things just trigger things in him. you know, you just want him to get a hold of it and stop doing, it basically. you know? it doesn't help -- it doesn't help. >> no, you're absolutely right. >> because he loses credibility every time he loses his temper, right? and he's a good guy. >> but you know, this has happened before. and before you know it it goes away and it's a new season, new alec baldwin, everything's fine. i'm just sorry he has to go through this.

days. >> that's exactly the way to do it. kristen stewart has aw big back end. tiny in real life. but 34 1/2 million, reege. for "twilight" and "snow white and the huntsman." >> thank god the vampires are around to keep her working. >> but she never smiles. if i were the highest-paid actress in all of hollywood i could crack a smile. look at this. she's a beautiful girl. it's like the uber models that make $100,000 a day and they're -- you know? smile for goodness sake! >> you know, i always like the way you did that. do it again. >> what'd i do? >> yeah, with the -- yeah. there it is. >> remember that? my great talent, reege. i can do this. watch my nostrils. >> yeah. that's really interesting to look at. >> all right. sad news. johnny depp did split with his long-time girlfriend, the gorgeous french actress vanessa paradis. >> how long? >> i think 14. you and i made 15, baby. >> that's right. >> they have two children. and a good friend of mine, army

>> yes. >> how do we, reege? >> we see each other as few times as possible. although we did have dinner the other night. >> yeah. over the last 12 years i think we've had dinner or seen each other about once every six weeks to two months it seems. >> more like three months to four years. no, you're right. no -- >> because joy and regis as a couple are really good friends of frank and mine. you know what i'm saying? when i know we're going to have dinner together, i'm excited. i know we're going to have a lot of laughs. >> and a lot that you've got to say. and boy, did you take off saturday night. >> i did. i took off a little bit. >> not going to talk about it. it was very interesting, and i was happy that you were still interested in this particular area that you talked about. for an hour and a half. >> any other questions? >> yeah. we actually have a facebook question from patricia from moundsville, west virginia.
what is the biggest adjustment, regis, since leaving the show? >> well, you know, there are times when i do miss a show to go to. especially if i have something, you know, spectacular or fun to talk about the next morning. i say, gee, i'd love to talk about this but there's no show. so what am i going to do? that is tough to get over. but that happens, you know, once a month, something like that. >> do you guys still go out s&p first night at a movie, a play, a restaurant. >> i used to go out all the time just to have something to talk about. because you know, i couldn't rely on you. >> true. i was home nursing. >> oh, boy, were you nursing. yeah, i'm going to see woody allen's movie tonight. >> okay. >> rome. something -- >> "to rome with love." >> "to rome with love." >> with alec baldwin. >> no kidding. >> he's in. >> do you think that's a publicity -- >> no. no. he was getting married. he was trying to get his marriage license. >> exactly right.

>> there are seeds. what's wrong with you? >> that's right. the little tiny seeds. >> which tastes better to you? with the seeds or no seeds? do they taste the same? >> can i put it in my mouth? >> give you a minute. >> they taste about the same. >> i like the first one better. >> you like the first one because actually you're going to pay twice as much just about for the work of having the seeds taken out for you. >> that's organic? >> no, no, no. we're past that. this is just seeds and no seeds. now we're going to -- >> i want to find organic. that's what i really want. >> you know wt these are? >> they look like mandarins, yes. >> they look like mandarins. taste this. are these canned or are they fresh? >> canned. >> what do you think? >> i'll say fresh. >> no, they are canned. but for an exotic fruit that can help. >> thank you very much. >> boy, you're doing great. >> i really am. >> this is corn. this is harder. fresh, frozen, canned, how do you know which is best? let's take a taste. >> isn't fresh always best? >> it's not always best because it can sometimes be too pricey for people.
so canned can be good. frozen can be good. >> needs salt. that's for darn -- i'm going to o'like this. because i like this color. mm-hmm. >> so what do you think? >> what do we like or -- >> which one do you like the best of all three of these? >> i like this one. >> you like the frozen one. >> yeah. >> i'll take the middle. >> that's the fresh one. this is the canned. but you know what? getting more fruits and vegetables every day is good. have what you can. eat what you like. and enjoy. >> it doesn't matter, what we learned here. eat what you want! just eat it! >> photos that will make you say -- >> i don't believe this woman. for an hour we talked about this. >> we'll be back. >> i can't believe that -- >> i know! >> get her off the stage. the heat is on. good morning. i'm meteorologist chris warren with your weather channel forecast. heat continues throughout a good portion of the east coast and
the midwest. but you see this right here. this rain, these storms we're going to have throughout the day today eventually will help cool things down. not the storms themselves but what's causing the storms. the cold front. so cooler air will be moving in to the northeast for you. so eventually we're going to see that cooler air. but once again today it is going to be another scorcher in the northeast. mid-atlantic and down into the south. you can see those temperatures starting to cool down. 70s behind the front. storms with the front. and hot out ahead of that front. so it's going to be a hot one again. then on friday we're still going to see some of those storms popping up in places. but you know what? this will be a sign that things are changing. it will be a bit of a bumpy transition. but nonetheless, it will be transitioning back to some cooler temperature readings. in fact, cooler at this point's relative. upper 80s and lower 90s. more significant cooling happens when that air really settles in.
so with the storms and the humidity it's not going to be a real big break on friday. but saturday you're back into the 80s there for new york. still in the upper 80s for d.c. and look at much of the heartland. even into the west now seeing some of that heat. and we're going to see a chance for some storms just in a few spots. and then on sunday a chance for a few showers around the great lakes and around florida things could be a little tricky around florida. could have a tropical system going on in the gulf by the end of the weekend and early next week. we're going to talk about that on the weather channel in days to come. so make sure you tune in for all the details on all that may develop in the gulf. but cooler air will be on the way for the northeast. remember, weekdays on the weather channel, you can wake up with al.

plenty of occasions to have a blast this summer if you need one. but if you do, alyssa rock has done the party pairing for you. >> very nice of you, alyssa. she's the co-founder and ceo of bottle notes, a website for wine enthusiasts like kathie lee. >> yes. and she's seven months pregnant. so i'm going to do the tasting for her too. >> good. >> give us some suggestions. >> if you're having a pool party this summer you can take the splash in more ways than one. >> yeah. >> you can have a wine like cannonball, which has a splash
theme. i know you like chardonnay, kathie lee. >> what time of the day are you talking about? >> i'd say you could start at 3:00 in the afternoon. >> 3:00 in the afternoon. n not 10:00 in the morning. >> i don't know. it tastes awfully good right now. >> sonoma county chardonnay. but if you want to go for a little more adventure you can host your own wine olympics this summer. have your guests bring wines from different countries or you yourselves can bring in wines from around the world. you can brown bag them, taste them blindly and then award your very own gold, silver, or bronze model. >> do something like this, keep them hidden. >> i think that's a cute idea. >> a nice party idea. >> please do that. better than sitting around talking to you and frank. >> but if you want to go with something traditional, a clam bake. >> nothing more fun. >> nothing more fun in the summer. with a clam bake you're definitely going to want to go with a sparkling wine or a full blush wine with some acidity. >> not red. >> no. you could do i alight bodied red

>> what's wrong with it? >> i'm not crazy about it. i like pinot grigio. it's lighter. >> but then we can also go -- if you're going for something like burgers, i actually love a red blend. and decoy by duck corn. >> duck corn's great. >> this is their second label. under $20. a great napa valley wine. merlot and cabernet. >> get to the last one because i want -- don't worry. happy birthday to christine capeldi, who's in our booth right now. there she is -- well, that's not -- it's her birthday today. >> it's not her picture? >> it is. >> i like her. she's cute. >> i want to thank my friend reege. hoda's back tomorrow. did you have a good time? >> fair. >> who's better, betty white or me? >> let me tell you something. don't overlook betty white. whoa. you've got to be a man to handle betty white. >> i know. you've got to come back and be with hoda
